A Duesy of A Destination
DeKalb County is the place where thousands of visitors come each year to celebrate the World's Greatest Classic Car Show and Festival: the famous Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival, and to experience our strong ties to our automotive heritage! In the city of Auburn, DeKalb's county seat, once operated the prestigious Auburn Automobile Co. whose halls now hold two MUST-SEE museums: the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum filled with classic automobiles owned by only the rich and famous in the early 1900's, and the National Auto & Truck Museum where you can see the #10 of only 12 ever built 1953 General Motors Futurliner along with many famous hot rods, trucks, vintage gas pumps and memorabilia. DeKalb County is actually home to 9 museums! Plan today to visit one, and add to your trip one of a kind antique and boutique shopping, art gallery gazing, fantastic places to eat, tours at the "Food Network" recognized Sechler's Pickle Factory and tastings at 3 "award winning" wineries! DeKalb also hosts one of Indiana's largest street fairs, the DeKalb County Free Fall Fair with free nationally recognized main stage entertainment! Everyone loves the fair!
